The Motel have been great sponsors of the club over many years and a big thanks goes out to them.
The Summer Cup showed the beauty of golf where no matter the skill of a golfer they can be still competitive in any event.
The two Summer Cup champions (handicap and scratch) were Steve Hall who plays off a handicap of 1 and Jared Bott off 34.
It was a great round by Hall who is a proven winner and he again showed his skill by shooting a four under par 68.
